Also in 2019 Helene Fischer (35) continues to be Germany's undisputed queen of the hit song. The singer is currently cementing this title with two new records in the Official German Charts, which are determined by GfK Entertainment. Their "Best of" album, released for the first time in 2010, was able to place itself on the charts for the 350th time this year (currently ranked 37th). Fischer replaces her colleague Andrea Berg (53), whose "Best of" appeared in 2001 349 times.
24 years in the charts
Thanks to hits like "Breathless through the Night", Fischer has been able to secure plots in the Top 100 with her albums to date 1,247 times. Converted this corresponds not only to a period of almost 24 years, as GfK Entertainment continues to announce, but also a new record in the Official German Charts since 1977. So far, Peter Maffay (70) had led with 1,224 weeks.
But there are still some records to be set for Fischer: So Maffay still has the best score for the most number one albums (19 pieces). Meanwhile, Andrea Berg keeps the records for the most number-one albums of a German singer (eleven pieces) and for the most consecutively on the one placed albums of a singer (eight pieces).
Incidentally, Robbie Williams (45) has recorded a duet with Helene Fischer for his Christmas album "The Christmas Present", which he is releasing from today, with which he sings the classic "Santa Baby" together. "It was a great honor for me to work with her, she's just great," Williams enthused in an interview with the news agency spot on news.
